The ultrafast NNP appliance is built on a 64-bit platform and supports up to 10 gigabit Ethernet networks, providing a real-time, front-end protection solution for the entire LAN and production environment. Multiple protocols are scanned to stop malicious programs, keeping the network clean and allowing safe traffic to pass through quickly and efficiently. NNP combines signature-based security with SandBox and DNA Matching technology to proactively stop malware.
Norman Network Protection includes Norman Endpoint Manager, a security operations center, which supports an unlimited number of appliances in the network. Additionally, enhancements in protocol support enable filtering of BitTorrent, the global standard for delivering files over the Internet and MSN messenger.
The NNP Appliance delivers high-performance inbound and outbound real-time scans of CIFS and SMB Microsoft Windows protocols and HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP3, RPC, TFTP and IRC.
In addition, the Norman antimalware appliance scans and detects files associated with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 file sharing protocol, SMB2. Communication between computers and Microsoft Sharepoint can be detected and scanned, protecting your Sharepoint servers from being infected with malware.
"Customers tell us the versatile Norman Network Protection can cost-effectively protect data from malware attacks just about anywhere in network," said Audun Lodemel, vice president, Marketing and Business Development. "We are seeing applications in remote retail locations, complex manufacturing sites, large enterprises and small businesses."
